Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

In-person screening and Q&A with director Jake Wachtel of the family mystery-adventure film “Karmalink.” Shot on location in the Khmer language with English subtitles, “Karmalink” tells the tale of a plucky group of kids, from a gentrifying poor neighborhood in Phnom Penh, who try to solve the mystery of a stolen idol. They encounter one tween’s inexplicable visions of Cambodian history, and reincarnation the 21st-century way, in this wryly dystopian story of economic justice. The Q&A will be moderated by IAC Sam Nunn School of International Affairs scholar Dr. Katja Weber, who runs GT’s study abroad program to Southeast Asia.
